(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
IS IT BETTER TO FOCUS ON ERADICATING NEGATIVE KARMA FIRST BEFORE APPLYING FOR DISCIPLESHIP?
Master Jun Hong Lu, is it better for us to first focus on our own cultivation and reduce our negative karma to a lower level before applying to become your disciple? Or should we apply this even earlier?
Master Jun Hong Lu:
Of course, the earlier the better. If you do it earlier you are able to rectify your shortcomings faster with the blessing of the Master. As an analogy, say you want to take a shower but you did not even have access to water; now I hand you a block of soap and a towel, etc. Of course it’s going to make your life much easier.
